The North Platte Public Schools Foundation in conjunction with North Platte Public Schools is excited to
announce that we are honoring Marnia Hughes as the March NPPS Bulldog Staff member of the month.
Marnia is the Early Developmental Network (EDN) Coordinator for the Early Childhood Department at
North Platte Public Schools. Marnia has been with NPPS Early Childhood Services for 10 Years. As part of
her role, she coordinates and finds services for families with children ages 0-3. Her peers describe
Marnia as the “heart” of the program.
Peggy Romshek, Special Education Services Director for North Platte Public Schools nominated Marnia
for the award. “Marnia brings so many skills to her position as services coordinator, which makes her
deserving of this award. Said Romshek. “To me what stands out the most is she gets what families are
going through and that is what makes her bond with them and do an exceptional job for them.” She said.
Marnia is also a nominee for North Platte Public School Districts 2020 Staff Person of the Year to be
celebrated at a date yet to be determined due to the cancellation of Education After Hours scheduled for
later this month.
The March business sponsor was Doodads and Fandangles, Jennifer Gilland and Sara Sonneman. Monthly
Sponsors give honorees a gift basket. The Foundation provides balloons and a gift card to the NPHS
Bulldog Store and Prairie Friends and Flowers delivers a bouquet.
The North Platte Public Schools Foundation facilitates the program and takes nominations from
principals and administration. Staff members are awarded monthly throughout the school year and will
be recognized at Education After Hours re-scheduled for fall 2020. The Foundation is seeking monthly
award sponsors for the 2020-2021 school year. For more information, contact the North Platte Public
Schools Foundation at 696-3325.

A message to our families~
Dear NPPS Families and Staff,
It is with a heavy heart that we confirm the governor's closure of all schools, and the cancellation of all extracurricular activities until May 31, 2020. This also includes all NSAA spring sanctioned sports and activities. We realize this is not news that many of you wanted to hear. Please understand that our Federal, State, and Local government and health officials are working very hard to keep us all healthy and safe during this most unprecedented and unpredictable time.
As responsible members of our community, we encourage you to continue practicing social and physical distancing, significant hygiene rituals and continue to wash your hands with warm soapy water. If you feel ill, have a dry cough, shortness of breath, or are running a fever, you are encouraged to call your healthcare provider. For more information about the Coronavirus, please visit the CDC website.
Stay strong, stay healthy, and we will see you all soon,
Dr. Ron Hanson, Superintendent
North Platte Public Schools
We Are NPPS!

Sunday, March 15, 2020
Good Evening, Staff and Families,
As we have mentioned, the COVID-19 virus is an ever-changing conversation and invokes a great deal of discussion and collaboration with our federal, state, and local health officials. At this time, the West Central District has NO confirmed cases of the Coronavirus (COVID-19); however, testing for the virus is ongoing.
We would like to provide you with a timeline of events that have occurred over the past few days.
Friday, March 13, 2020
10:00 a.m. – Conference Call with Governor Ricketts and State Health Officials
1:30 p.m. – Conference Call with Nebraska Department of Education
2:30 p.m. – In-person meeting with West Central District Health Department (WCDHD), local emergency departments, and Great Plains Health
4:15 p.m. – Press conference with the task force
Saturday, March 14, 2020

Sunday, March 15, 2020
2:00 p.m. – Principals, Directors, Executive Staff, and WCDHD met in person for a conference call with the Nebraska Department of Education, State Health Officials, and Governor Ricketts
4:00 p.m. – Conference Call with ESU 16
4:45 p.m. – Face to Face Meeting with WCDHD and NPPSD Executive Team
Our primary concern at this time is preventative and precautionary measures. We will continue to encourage our families to practice social distancing and proper hygiene and hand-washing. With this being said, NPPSD will implement an extended break for the balance of the week of March 16. All NPPSD schools are closed the week of March 16, 2020, with plans to reopen on Monday, March 23, 2020. During this time, staff and the community will not have access to any academic building. This decision will extend our school year to May 27, 2020, for students (more information will follow as it becomes available).
We do realize surrounding schools are closed for two full weeks. Please note they are combining this with a pre-planned spring break. The NPPSD decision to close for additional time will be made on a week to week basis and could change at any time. These decisions are not made lightly and are in conjunction with the Public Health Command Center.
At this time, we ask that students and families continue to practice social distancing, good hygiene, and give careful consideration when visiting public venues. If you have specific health care questions, please contact your health care provider.
We want to share information with you about the Coronavirus (COVID - 19) and how we are keeping up to date with details of the virus. As with any contagious illness, we are working closely with the West Central District Health Department (WCDHD) and Nebraska Department of Education and will follow all guidelines that are shared with us.
Based on these guidelines, the NPPS Communications Department will be in constant contact with all school nurses.
Intent: to inform you of COVID - 19, how each of us can help prevent the spread of viruses and finally to share resources so that you can stay informed.
We will continue to update this blog as additional information comes available.
